in espaniol vominos. the egyptian conflict in the country could lead to the collapse of the state. >> opposition leaders are not agreeing to talks. a bill for superstorm sandy victims is on its way to president obama's desk. the boy scouts plan to reverse a national ban on gay scouts and leaders. >> it's something in this day and age, it's not right. there is a search under way off the coast of italy for a u.s. fighter plane gone missing. the f-16 was on a training mission. senator john kerry could be approved as secretary of state by the end of the day. >> being in the white house right now, this is like mom, i made it! tiger woods.
7:01 am
>> now that is embarrassing. >> and all that matters. >> the, uhm, very classy very refined video entitled go [ bleep ] yourself. >> good luck on charlie rose. >> on "cbs this morning." >> iran the government says it launched a monkey into orbit and brought it back to earth. >> they did release a photo, this is the alleged iranian space monmonkey. i'm guessing he didn't volunteer for the mission. welcome to "cbs this morning." today could be a pivotal moment in the lives of 11 million people living in secrecy. the immigration bill picking up steam could also affect business owners nationwide. cbs news poll shows a slim majority of americans 51% think illegal immigrants working in the united states should be able to stay and apply for citizenship. >> the white house and bipartisan groups in congress are hoping to capitalize on that feeling. bill plante is at the white
7:02 am
house. bill good morning. >> reporter: good morning and good day in the west where the president speaks in las vegas just before noon pacific time to endorse the bipartisan senate plan for immigration reform. four years ago, the president promised immigration reform but he hasn't able to deliver. today, even though the white house has its own bill the president will urge the passage of the senate version because it has a path to citizenship for those who are here illegally. president obama's speech in las vegas today has been long planned but when the bipartisan group of senators announced a deal the president could live with on monday the white house decided to endorse their plan hoping to speed its passage. >> this is a big deal this is an important development. this is in keeping with the principles the president has been's spousing for a long time. >> the most recent effort to get a comprehensive immigration plan passed led by president george w. bush failed in 2007 but the new plan looks to both sides like good electoral politics. >> we believe this will be the
7:03 am
year congress finally gets it done. >> that's because in the 2012 election hispanics voted 71% for the president, and he wants to reward them. at the same time republicans feel the need to court them. >> we realize that there are many issues in which we think we are in agreement with our hispanic citizens but this is a preeminent issue with those citizens. >> the plan would grant temporary legal status to most of the 11 million llegal immigrants if they pass a criminal background check, pay a fine and back taxes, and learn english. they would then get in line behind those who have already gone through the legal steps. the plan also calls for increased border security and a tougher visa process. despite the bipartisanship of the so-called gang of eight, there are still hurdles in the senate. in mccain's republican caucus some fear that the bill amounts to de facto amnesty. >> no one should expect the members of the senate are just going to rubber stamp what a
7:04 am
group have met and decided. >> reporter: conservatives like fox news commentator sean hannity were strongly opposed to the 2007 immigration on the grounds it amounted to amnesty. this time talking to one of the republican authors of the plan hannity seemed more open to listen. >> it's the most thoughtful proposal that i have heard and you've explained it better than anybody but the devil will be in the details. >> i agree. >> and if they don't secure the border first there's no point. >> reporter: there's no guarantee that this will pass the senate, let alone the house where the political calculus is different. many house members have few hispanic constituents in their districts. even so there's been a group meeting in the house quietly to work on their own plan. so the president speaks today in las vegas, just the first in a campaign to get immigration reform accomplished quickly, while he still has time. norah, charlie? >> bill plante thanks.
7:05 am
arizona senator john mccain is a long time advocate of immigration reform he tried to enact his own plan in 2006 and one of the architects of the new deal. senator, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> so what you say to those in your party and on talk radio that when you look closely, this is simply amnesty? >> well i hope they do look closely because border enforcement and border security is a prerequisite and obviously that makes sense since we don't want to have a repeat again some years from now of another group of people coming to this countryily eelcountry illegally. we can do it we have the technology and the capabilities. second of all, people who have not committed a crime here or done something wrong will have a legal status but they will not be able to have citizenship until they line up behind those who came here legally to get a green card on a path to citizenship. they'll pay fines. they'll pay back taxes.
7:06 am
they will have to meet a lot of criteria. i hope that as more americans see this proposal that they will understand that we cannot have forever 11 million people living in the shadows in this country. >> senator, buzzfeed is reporting this morning that the president today in las vegas will say that same-sex couples should be included in this immigration reform. is that in the senate proposal and if not why not? >> well, it's not, and it's something that frankly is not paramount importance at this time. we'll have to look at it we'll have to gauge how the majority of congress feels, but that to me is a red flag that frankly, we will address in time. we need to get broad consensus over, on our proposal to start with, and there are a number of very difficult issues we have to resolve, and as the critics said, we have to go to the floor
7:07 am
of the senate we have to debate and amend and we look forward to working with both republicans and democrats on both sides of the aisle and the president. >> let me ask you about the plan that says the path to citizenship is contingent upon securing our border first, so some worry that may take years in order to secure our borders. so how will you decide what is secure enough? >> well, we will have a commission made up of the most knowledgeable people including border state governors and other experts who will make recommendations, final decision will be made by the secretary of homeland security. the israelis just erected 440 some miles of secure fence along their border. the technology we have today, with surveillance capability and detection capability and enormous technology advances that have been made i have no doubt that if we put the right
7:08 am
resources into it we will be able to have a secure border. >> there's also former governor jeb bush who wrote in an op-ed trying to secure the border before moving toward broader reform is in his judgment "short-sighted and self-defeat self-defeating self-defeating." >> all i can say is the people who live in the southern part of my state deserve the same security you have in your studios and they don't. most of the drugs coming across the arizona/mexico border today come across the arizona border that come into our country come across the arizona border. people's homes are invaded. their land is crossed by people who are drugglesmugglers, coyotes who put people in drop houses and treat them in an atrocious fashion. it's a humanitarian issue as well as an issue we have to control the drugs that are flowing into our country. i think the people who live in the southern part of my state
7:09 am
deserve the same accurate that you have in your studio. >> senator john mccain food togood to see you, thank you for joining us. john john kerry is expected to be deemed as secretary of state as hillary clinton steps down. >> good morning to you norah and charlie. john kerry may be approved as the next secretary of state by this afternoon could be sworn into office by the end of the week. the job of being america's top diplomat is nonpartisan so he must sign his massachusetts senate seat by friday. there are a few technicalities the senate foreign relations committee which oversees the state department have to vote on the nomination. he's served upon the committee for 30 years and not one of the 16 is expected to vote against him. once then he can be confirmed in hours and he didn't voice any
7:10 am
departures from sect tear clinton's views last week. >> secretary clinton leaves office i understand she got somewhat of a gift from president obama. >> could you call it that a group of president obama's top political donors helped pay off some of the leftover bills from her 2008 unsuccessful bid for the presidency. this is according to campaign disclosure reports filed last week. as you know secretary of state she was forbidden from political fund-raising. >> margaret do we know the kinds of changes that senator kerry will want to make when he becomes secretary of state kerry either in terms of policy or personnel? >> it's not clear on the personnel front. there's still people waiting to hear what they'll do for a living when they show up at work on monday in terms of some of the career foreign service folks, his inner circle is still unannounced at this point, but what we do know is on the foreign policy front, he really to borrow a phrase from him, there is no daylight when it
7:11 am
comes to secretary clinton's views and john kerry's view of libya or any other foreign policy. he emphasized in his view economic policy is foreign policy, so there's a focus on that a lot. >> margaret brennan thank you. an international meeting in paris yesterday focused on the civil war in syria. delegates from more than 50 nations were there including the u.s. ambassador to syria, robert ford. clarissa was there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning from a wet and windy paris. ambassador ford was here yesterday to attend meetings between the syrian opposition and its international backers, this comes on the heels of an announcement from the white house that the u.s. will give a further $10 million in humanitarian aid to the syrian people. yesterday the syrian opposition saying the time is for action and not for words, but in an interview with cbs news
7:12 am
ambassador ford was adam ant that the u.s. will not intervene directly in syria, even if this conflict drags on. so are we willing to wait another two years and another 60,000 dead? >> i don't know how long it will take. we obviously deeply regret the violence that this regime has inflicted on these people. >> reporter: are we doing enough to stop it? >> in a situation like this we have to work on multiple fronts. we're isolating the regime and weakening the regime. we're working to set the opposition up so it's ready to play its role and we at the same time have spent over $200 million in humanitarian assistance to help people stay alive through this tragedy. i've worked in the middle east for 30 years. i don't think i've ever seen people as courageous fighting in nasty, brutal dictatorships that i have seen these syrians but i also know from time and places like iraq that americans can try to help on the margins, but ultimately we have to let these societies find their own
7:13 am
ways forward. the americans can't fix this problem. syrians have to fix this problem. >> reporter: the ambassador also said that the u.s. is working very closely with the syrian political opposition trying to help it organize itself better essentially the u.s. strategy really focused on trying to help syrians prepare for the time after the regime falls and the problem with that syrian activists say, is that in the meantime this brutal dictatorship continues to kill its own people. >> great interview, clarissa ward thank you. and residents of one of the world's most fabled and mysterious cities are celebrating timbuktu driving out rebels tied to al qaeda. it fell into lebl hands nearly a year ago. as the rebels left they set fire to a library full of priceless, ancient manuscripts. people in brazil are talking

7:15 am
>> reporter: richard meyerdirk is the den leader of a maryland troop which posted a message on its website said it would not discriminate based on sexual orientation. the boy scouts ordered it removed. >> we just want to stand up and keep the momentum going so that they do the right thing here and change their membership policy. >> reporter: more than 1 million people signed petitions protest the scout's anti-gay policy and corporate sponsors like u.p.s. and merck have stopped financial contributions, but some conservatives remain staunchly opposed to change and in a statement the family research council said if the board capitulates to the bullying of homosexual activists the boy scout's legacy of producing great leaders will become yet another casualty of moral compromise. if the policy is changed local troops would decide whether to admit gay members. >> finally the leadership is starting to listen to the voices of its members. >> reporter: in 2000 evan wilson argued and lost a supreme court case challenging the ban.
7:16 am
>> a lot has changed in america since that 5-4 ruling in 2000. the military used to discriminate against gay people serving our country. the military no longer discriminates. americans didn't understand why gay people needed the freedom to marry. now nine states plus the district of columbia have gay couples sharing in the freedom to marry. >> wilson and other gay rights advocates say change has come out about because society's attitudes towards gay and lesbians have changed. california has been at the forefront with the fight for gay marriage a legal battle that will reach the supreme court in march and through a california scout who out iffought the anti-gay policy. egypt's military chief is warning the political unrest in his country could lead to the collapse of the state, some 60 people have been killed in the most recent protests thursday marked the second anniversary of the uprising that forced hosni

big story. iran has successfully sent a monkey into space. [ cheers ] >> iran is calling it a huge advancement in not letting women drive. [ laughter ] remember what they told you in driver's ed? a good driving record means lower car insurance rates. a new study claims insurers often charge safe drivers more than those who have been in accidents. bob hunter is director of insurance for the consumer federation of america which conducted the story. bob, good morning. >> good morning. how are you? >> good. all right, your study seems to fly in the face of common sense. explain. >> we've been studying low-income america and the trouble they're having affording
7:39 am
car insurance. one of the reasons we started looking at it is how do they price. we were finding that low-income people with low-income jobs and -- and less education were being charged more than even people with auto accidents that have higher income jobs and more education. and so we tested it in 12 cities with the five leading riders and found that 2/3 of the time the person with no -- no accident was paying more, sometimes as much as $2,000 more than the person with the accident. and that -- so that was -- we confirmed what we were seeing in -- by a study. >> how did you do the test bob? >> we actually went on the web sites of the five leading companies in 12 cities. we put in the test. we put two women with identical driving histories except one had an accident one didn't. the one with the accident was an executive living on a certain
7:40 am
block that had this accident but also was married and -- and owned her own home. the other woman that we were testing was single renting, and had a low-paying job and less education. and the -- we found that the prices for the woman without the accident was always higher, 60% of the time was higher. not always. there was one company that didn't do that. but the four other companies did. >> bob, so the american insurance institute had this to say in response to your study. they said this "the consumer federation of america's report draws overly broad conclusions based on a tiny and unrepresentative sample of insurance policies." how do you respond to that? >> well, first of all, it's not true. we've -- the reason we found it is we've done three other studies, and we saw that all over the country in low-income
7:41 am
zip codes, high-income zip codes. so we did this particular study to confirm what we found all over the country. so we -- we are sure that this is a true study, that the impact of factors like education, occupation, credit score, things like that are more important than your driving record for a lot of people. >> so what should be done? >> we've asked -- we're particularly concerned about low-income people who are having difficulty affording what the state requires them to purchase. and we're pointing to california that has a low-income plan. if you're a good driver in california with low income you can get a very low price. the highest price in that particular plan is $350 in los angeles. we're asking the other states to look and see, what are your low-income people paying. are they paying too much because of these factors that the american public has rejected as -- in research we did as unfair?
7:42 am
these unfair non-driving factors are driving up the rates more than accidents and tickets. are these rates unaffordable and is that why up to 1/3 of the lower income americans have no a new study shows snoring can be far more dangerous than you think. we'll talk to a sleep expert. that's next on "cbs this morning."

7:48 am
>> what happens, when you go to sleep at night the muscles relax in the throat. that's normal. happens to all of us. as it narrows, the air will be turbulent. that causes vibration of tissues. that's what snoring is. if it collapses all the way, that's an apnea. >> and who snores? >> you know, men and women, believe it or not. it's more prevalent than people think. 40% to 60% of people. it's not just a bad habit. we assume, you know just tell your bed partner if they would be considerate and roll over and stop snoring we could solve this. it is a problem. there are easy solutions. and not only cardiovascular risk, it affects sexual relationships. you can't have sexual relationships or at least it's complicated if you're in separate bedrooms. it is a problem, and there's some simple solutions. there's saline that you could use if you have nasal congestion to reduce the inflammation. just rolling over to your side will solve it propping yourself up with pillows. or getting more sleep simply. >> and weight loss, you said. >> weight loss exactly. not a lot of weight loss, 10 to
7:49 am
15% of your present body weight may be all you need. >> you say that with this study, too, it shows you think that physicians are ignoring how serious snoring is as a health risk. >> across the board as a society, we do not understand the significance and importance of sleep. and think about it, this is breathing. so you're going to sleep at night, your airway's becoming compromised. that really puts a stress on your body. many don't ask questions about sleep half the time. >> a lot of people may be hearing this for the first time and saying, wow, my spouse or partner snores, what should i do? >> some of the simple things i mentioned, staying on your side losing weight, not working -- you need to reach out to a sleep specialist and get an evaluation. there may be simple over-the-counter things they can suggest. or you may need to go for a sleep study or surgical under intervention for some. >> thank you. the nation's longest running dog show is in for some changes. we'll show what it means for the

[ cheers ] >> i wonder if you think we helped create this great myth? >> we did. we absolutely helped create the myth. >> reporter: cbs news chairman jeff fagar, was the executive produce or that story. >> we wanted to believe it. who didn't? it was an unbelievably inspirational story. but we were duped. >> reporter: back then almost everyone was duped by
8:35 am
armstrong's claim that he rode a clean race to the top. but "60 minutes" stayed on the story. over the next 13 years the team would produce four investigative reports that exposed armstrong's lies. >> we have learned -- >> what's remarkable about our relationship with lance armstrong is that it's taken a 180-degree turn. >> reporter: producer michael rudestki worked behind the scenes for years to convince armstrong to answer growing allegations. >> the first conversation he was charming and kind of intoxicating. i told him how much i admired the thanks he'd accomplished, but there were questions that remained. >> reporter: in the next conversation armstrong's tone changed. >> and he said you know we better be careful what we say because he's never doped in his life. >> reporter: their last phone call was even more direct. >> he just outright threatened us if we moved forward with the story and told me that -- that there was going to be hell to
8:36 am
pay for me personally. >> reporter: what do you say to that? >> when someone threatens you, generally you're on to something. >> reporter: what "60 minutes" was on to was a grand doping and cover-up scheme. lance armstrong never did agree to a second interviewer with "6 minutes." but michael rudduski got the next best thing. armstrong's former teammate. >> you saw lance armstrong inject epo? >> yeah. like we all did. >> right after our broadcast aired we got a letter to jeff fa fagar that says, "in the cold light of morning, your job was extraordinarily shoddy or a vicious hit and run job." we couldn't release it until morning. >> reporter: but it had been released to the press. >> in the morning lance armstrong was demanding an
8:37 am
on-air apology from "60 minutes." >> we will never apologize. we stand by our story. we're proud of our reporting. >> reporter: seems like controlling the narrative. >> they did it here. >> reporter: 60 minutes" followed up with another story. this time he got the interviewer with the man who would ultimately bring armstrong down. travis tygart runs a small watchdog agency that investigated armstrong for years. >> this was a fight for the soul of sport. >> you look for people like travis tygart in the world because he sheds light all by himself on something that is a serious problem. i think he's an american hero. he alone is the reason lance armstrong had to come clean. >> reporter: and finally in a talk show confession lance armstrong admitted he'd been lying all along. >> what i think was really troublesome is that he was only the partial -- it was only the partial truth which is why we're still on the story. it's a partial confession.
8:38 am
it's not over. i think he'd like to think it's over, but it's not. >> i assume he means by that that it's not over that there may be more things to come or more cases of discussion about -- from people who may feel that they have been wronged. >> yeah. and i think lance armstrong seems to say that there's more for him to say, too. jeff fa g ar's right. the story's not over. for anybody to accuse "60 minutes" of shoddy reporting, you sort of lose a little bit of credibility with that. >> right. as michael said, once he started to threaten that's when a good -- a good sign you may be on to something. >> the story's not over. it's a discussion you might not want to have but you need to. planning for the death of a loved one. lee woodruff and jack ford show how to make it easier on

people are living longer these days, but that can also mean growing challenges taking care of our parents. nearly 5.5 million americans now have alzheimer's disease. that number could jump to 16 million by the year 2050. 2050. families with a history of & alzheimer's struggle with enormously difficult decisions. "cbs this morning" contributor lee woodruff write about her own family in the new issue of "more" magazine. lee is here along with cbs news legal analyst, jeff ford, joins us at the table. good to see you both. lee, clearly you're very close to your sisters. you describe them as your bones, your best friends, your confidante. the three of you made a pact. what is it? >> we have. watching our dad with alzheimer's, we've decided this is not the way we want to go in a lingering way where we're not sure what's going on. we have decided we'll try to figure out where the line is recognizing that's really hard. and we've got the cocktail for how we might just sort of go to sleep and maybe not wake up.
8:42 am
>> what is that cocktail? >> you might need to read the magazine. you want me to tell you? >> yes. >> i had to call my friend who was a physician who -- i told him i was writing a novel because -- you know, there are legal issues here, as well. >> how will you know when it's time? >> see, that's the issue. how do you know where the line is? i think as you get older, jack and i were talking about this you probably push the line. we acknowledged that completely. we may pass the line. we may not make this happen. but what's important is having the conversation about end-of-life issues. that was the point of the article. our parents' generation didn't want to talk about it. >> yeah. >> jack, you previously served on the board of the national alzheimer's -- >> advisory board. >> so what are the legal issues involved here if someone contemplates these end-of-life plans? >> what's difficult here nora is these emotional issues that we're talking about here don't necessarily intersect with the legal constraints here. the law has differentiated between end-of-life situations and quality of life situations.
8:43 am
and it hasn't really embraced either of them in terms of the notion of assisted suicide. that's what you're talking about. with regard to end-of-life situations, you have three states in this country that have stepped forward, two by legislation, one by court decision, and said we will allow physician-assisted suicide, but limitations. within six months of dying essentially. what hasn't been embraced is the notion of, all right, how do we deal with quality of life deterioration. and the law has not accepted in any way, shape, or form somebody stepping in and helping out somebody else to end their life because their quality of life has deteriorated so dramatically. that is an area that the law doesn't provide any assistance. >> so gray. it's different for everybody. you know, that's part -- >> and difficult. difficult for everybody. >> and that's part of what my sisters and i are talking about. what -- where was dad when he passed that line and -- and, you know of course complicit in this,
8:44 am
it's not easy but teaching us to appreciate the time we have left. >> jack, you have this in your family history too. are you concerned? is this something you thought about doing? >> my wife's side of the family, my mother-in-law, my wife's mother suffered and died from alzheimer's. grandmother. o that side of the family. and my wife and i have gotten involved in it because of that. we've had conversation. and the important thing, as lee said you have to have conversations with other family members. have everybody have some understanding of what you're looking for and hoping for when you get to those stages of your life. they're very difficult conversations to have. >> lee and jack, thank you. an important conversation to have certainly. it's been called america's least-remembered and most-bungled war. mo rocca will tell us everything we never knew about the war of 1812.

events have been taking place to mark the 200th anniversary of the war of 1812 the last time the u.s. defended itself against britain. it inspired the "the star spangled banner" and something else to make it unique. mo, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. if you know anything about the war of 1812 you know it's that war that's wedged between the revolutionary war and the civil war. and you know that we won it right? well, if you go up north to canada they say that they won it. and honestly i didn't even know that canada was in it. every year on louisiana's battlefield, the battle of new orleans is commemorated. many view the american victory
8:48 am
here as the end to the war of 1812, a sprawling three-year conflict that once and for all freed the u.s. from the shackles of great britain. the british had been interfering with american trade. months before this battle, the british burned down the white house. >> fire! >> reporter: but the stars and stripes would survive the perilous fight at the battle of baltimore inspiring francis scott key to write "the star spangled banner." ♪ o say can you see ♪ >> reporter: so the british were the ones who started this all, right? we were under attack essentially? >> we awe ourselves as that. -- we saw ourselves as that. some senators were looking for an excuse to invade canada. they're saying well the british seizing american ships, sailors, that gives us a right to declare war. let's go to war and take the british colonies of canada. >> reporter: we invaded canada? our oh so nice neighbor to the north? how come i didn't learn that in school? i always was taught the war of
8:49 am
1812 is about the "the star spangled banner" and about americans defending ourselves against the british. >> i think one reason we don't study much about the war of 1812 is we did not succeed in taking canada. so no one wants to hear about that. it's sandwiched in between the revolutionary war which had huge figures like george washington. then the civil war which is -- a larger thing. >> reporter: the war of 1812 is like the jan brady. the awkward middle child of the three wars. historians often call the war of 1812 america's forgotten war. but across the border in ontario, canada, well they've got a different take. thousands are gathered here today to watch a re-enactment of the battle of queenston heights which, as everyone knows, was one of the most important battles in the war of 1812. really it was. just ask any canadian. what are school kids in canada taught about the war of 1812? >> that it was a canadian victory. we fought off the american invaders. ultimately it resulted in saving
8:50 am
canada and creating our own canadian identity. >> reporter: okay. level with me ranger vince. how much of this was about grabbing canada? >> that depends who you ask. the perception is we won the war of 1812 hands down. however, if you go to canada the perception is the canadians and the british beat the americans in the war of 1812. >> reporter: in 1812 the pongz of canada included -- population of canada included many americans who left after the revolution. one of canada's national heroes is american-born laura seacord. she trekked through the night to warn the british about the imminent american invasion. yes, she's canada's paula revere. in the end, both countries say they won the war. a kind of win-win. from an american to a canadian happy anniversary. >> thank you very much. glad to have you here. just don't issue any proclamations. >> reporter: i promise not to invade you. >> good.
8:51 am
thank you very much. >> reporter: and that's the latest on the war of 1812. and i promise to keep you posted on any late breaking developments in this conflict. >> mo, we all have one question -- what about the beard and not the beard? >> reporter: it was a very long shoot. [ laughter ] >> that sort of says it all. listen, i don't doubt anything that ranger vince has to say, mo. if you need more questions or information, he's got it for you. >> reporter: seriously, he is your fantasy high school history teacher. this guy knows everything. he's amazing. >> we'll see you in new orleans? yes. join me in jackson square. >> we'll be there. up next, your
